Literature
Greetings to Great A'Tuin
I know that somewhere out there
Rincewind runs away from Death
who hunts him just for a hobby.
I know that he never
wished to be a hero
or save anybody's ass
but his own.
I know that somewhere out there
a young witch is growing up
like flint grows within the chalk.
I know she has the fire in her
to be the hag of her hills,
this land which she carries inside her bones,
and that she's never left alone.
I know that somewhere out there
a fierce werewolf lady
keeps guarding the law.
I know that she's deeply in love
with the most gentle and naive dwarf
of six foot six inches height
and that, for both, it is just right.
I know that somewhere out there
a girl became a wizard;
her name was Eskarina.
I know the Unseen University
told her: "Off limits for girls!"
and that she, nonetheless,
mastered some of the greatest magic arts.
I know that somewhere out there
a man of cunning mind
is reigning the most chaotic city.
I know Ankh-Morpork could not exist
without him, the Lord Patrician,

FPK - From ashes and dirt
"So, all together the situation is stabile", Thanael reported. "You should consider sending grain seeds to the northern border though, so they could still have a harvest. Otherwise they have to make it through the winter on fish alone."
Ardaigh made a note of that. Garrett looked at the big map, frowning. "What is about Koldar?", he asked suspiciously. "Have you been there to look after King Cold? I don't want him to march back here on a moment's notice..."
"When I'd sailed there, they had just arrived", Thanael told. "Took them much longer because they had to take the land route, and the king is concerned about Lucilla's wellfare. I've seen him shoo around his servants to make the old castle a habitable place again in time before the child is born – he seems just fine."
Ardaigh allowed herself a hopeful smile. The idea that Tiberius would now take care of his family and not care about her anymore was somewhat uplifting.
"Also", Thanael added, "I should inform Your Majesty that t

Kalei and Thanael stood somewhere in the crowd, talking while they waited for Ardaigh to arrive. "How does it feel to meet your new landsmen?", Kalei asked with a smile.
Thanael looked at the Rosellians around and lifted an eyebrow. "I think they are less impressed. Besides, it was the country who took me in, not the people. Not sure if I need to meet my new landsmen..."
Kalei rolled her eyes. "You should really make some friends, you know that?"
"I like to think Ardaigh is my friend", Thanael replied. "And that you might consider me a friend of yours."
He grinned as he knew Kalei would object immediately. "I'm not your friend. I... tolerate you", she told him and tried to put on a snooty face.
Thanael looked as innocent as he could. "And I value this very highly."
They both laughed. Then the murmuring around them ceased, and both of them put their attention on the opening door.
Ardaigh stepped into the hall, dressed in a purple gown with a skirt of thousands of pink roses. She tried a

FPK - Brought back by the mismatched team
Kalei:
"So... basically, King Cold wants you back, or he won't sign up for peace", I closed my report.
Lucilla opened her mouth to say something, but Count Viserys laughed sharply. "Now that he's lost everything, he thinks he can claim her back?"
Lady Aurelia frowned at her relative while she served me and Thanael each a cup of tea. "It was never his to claim her", she noted. "You took Lucilla away by force."
"So, is he alright?", Lucilla asked, not minding her father nor Aurelia.
I shrugged, looking to Thanael for help – I had no idea how King Cold was. Upset about his lost war probably?
"We have not seen him, mylady, but as long as he still can make demands, I'm sure he's still the good old tyrant we all know and loathe", Thanael told her merrily. I laughed, Lucilla not so much.
"So you work for the Petal Princess now", she said, looking at Thanael incontently. "You really are a traitor after all."
"That's exactly what I am", Thanael could barely have cared less. "Didn't

FPK - A mismatched team on the Road
Kalei:
I glared at Thanael. We were riding what, an hour now? And he was so close to driving me insane! Where did he take that obtrusively good mood from? Why couldn't he just shut up? No, he had to sing...
"We're off to seek the Countess, the beautiful Countess of cold,
we're off to seek the Countess, with hair and eyes of gold,
because, because, because, because, because...
because of a command that we were told,
we're searching the Countess of cold!"
"Oh, please, stop it finally!", I requested, somewhat exhausted.
Thanael grinned, but he stopped singing. "Does mylady not appreciate music?", he inquired.
"I don't appreciate being called 'mylady', that's for sure", I told him.
He shook his head. "Why is everyone so insulted by being addressed with a proper title? Someone once told me it was courtesy, but it seems to be an offense." Hurrying his horse, he rode up next to me. "Besides that, you'd like it far less if I called you simply by your name. So, tell

FPK - Investigation of a mismatched team
Kalei looked up from her maps and got up on her feet when she heard them coming. She was tense to stand before the traitor once again. The door opened and Queen Lacriel marched into the library, Thanael following her. Prison and war had not done well on him. His eyes were lined by dark circles in a pale, thin face, his bare feet and the too wide shirt hanging loosely around his ribs gave an idea of how much weight he had lost. But he stood there all calm and unimpressed, giving Kalei a short nod for greeting.
Kalei rightaway ignored him and smiled at the Queen instead. "Don't worry, Kalei", Lacriel said. "He will behave."
A glare over to Thanael who confirmed dryly: "Of course I will behave, I'm not a savage."
Lacriel smiled on that. "We shall see. If you are, you'll go back to your cage. Kalei, I rely on you. One word, and I'll free you from his company", she promised. Kalei nodded, somewhat relieved. Lacriel knew she was telepathic; she would not make her endure Thanael's cruelty eve

I am Sporus

Two different depictions of Sporus, a young freedman in the Roman Empire who became the "wife" of Emperor Nero. Nero was a weird guy, but I don't blame him for all of his weird ideas, for example not for the horse as consul, and I don't blame him either for having an interest in men, not even men in women's garb.
But I can and do blame him for having a boy of about 14 years castrated, raped, stuck in a gown and veil, presented to the empire as his bride, and pressured into a gender role he didn't choose for himself. Sporus was Nero's wife for about two years, he was presented as empress in public (see first outfit) and even called Sabina, for Nero's deceased wife Poppaea Sabina whom Sporus was said to resemble to a great extent, which, siiiick.
And after Nero's suicide, Sporus was still treated as a girl; Nymphidus Sabinus married him, probably to lay a claim on the throne, and after he was killed, Sporus was handed over to Otho, who also married him (perhaps for his own claim, perhaps because Poppaea Sabina once had been his wife as well and he liked the replacement as much as Nero did).
Next to sit on the throne (Roman emperors superseded each other in almost monthly cadence in 68 / 69) was Vitellius, and he had no interest in marrying Sporus - no, his brilliant new idea was to have the "Rape of Proserpina", an essential part of mythology, re-enacted in a public play, with Sporus as the female lead. Yeah, Sporus was pretty much fed up at this point. He comitted suicide before the public rape could take place, see second outfit which is mostly following my headcanon idea of Sporus' end - I like to imagine he wanted to die as himself after years of this fucked up farce. He was not yet 20.

Hm, do I have to age-lock this picture because it shows (if vaguely) a suicide or because Sporus was a crossdresser? Whatevs, I'll have it as mature content just to be safe.

I know Ankh-Morpork could not exist
without him, the Lord Patrician,
and that this unsympathetic cold politician
has one being he honestly cares for.

I know that somewhere out there
the Winter himself fell in love with a girl
and was but just a boy trying to impress her.
I know he thought that iron and water
were enough to make him human for her
but she kissed him to death by the sun's fire
and she cried for him afterwards.

I know that somewhere out there
a clumsy dreamer had to learn
to be more than a dozen elbows and knees.
I know he once was Death
but Death was never him,
now he remembers the DUTY
and the loneliness along with it.

I know that somewhere out there
Susan Sto Helit, almost mortal,
beats bogeymen out her house with a poker.
I know that she knows
how music with rocks in feels
and that one can have a perfect moment
even with nougat pralinés.

I know that somewhere out there
the auditors of reality
are still trying to bring order to the chaos.
I know that they will ever fail
and I am glad about it
for they never truly got
what humans are for.

I know that somewhere out there
a sour, cynical misanthrop
upholds social ideals even surrounded by crime.
I know that he fell in love
with a woman who breeds and trains dragons,
that he works with trolls, vampires, werewolves and dwarves
despite being full of prejudices against any species.

I know that somewhere out there
a bunch of wee free men
steal and drink and fight wholeheartedly.
I know they just as dedicatedly protect
their home, their little big witch, their freedom
with no king nor queen to rule them;
they are not to be fooled again.

I know that somewhere out there
the Grim Reaper is still trying
to understand humans
I know that he cares
even so much
he gave lifetime
to more than one child.

I know that somewhere out there
Great A'Tuin swims on
through the wide dark space.
I wonder if she knows
that we remember her
that we remember her creator
and keep this memory in our hearts
as it guides us through darkness
makes us cry
makes us laugh
makes us think
makes us embrace
the impossible and the unthinkable.

I know that these stories
remain precious to me
even when the writer is long gone.

I know that somewhere out there
the ripples live on...
Greetings to Great A'Tuin
Today, the third year has passed since Sir Terry Pratchett died. I'm kinda bringing a tribute to him here, as his "Discworld" books are by far my favorites, have pulled me through some dark times and still accompany me wherever I go. I'm describing characters that have grown dear to me, impressions these books left in me. This is one of the things I tag as "poetry", even though there's nothing much poetic about it - it's really just a bunch of more or less structured thoughts. I don't claim this to be art, y'know. Just wanted to remember him today. Thank you, Sir Terry, for what you gave to the world and to me, and I hope you are well where you are now.

Hello, guys. No, I'm not back in action yet, not quite. Working on some things, but it'll take a week longer or so. whitewolfdreamer27, I promise I'll read your new chapter one of these days. But the reason for this journal is another one entirely; I want to ask opinions about something I don't understand.

I've met a girl at university and we've become somewhat friends, spending time with each other, babbling about stuff. And we somehow got to the topic of same-sex-marriage which was legalized in our country last year. And she said she doesn't think it's right, she cannot support that because she is Christian, and God said that men and men / women and women are not supposed to love each other in that way. She doesn't actively discriminate same-sex couples, but she thinks they live in sin and should not be supported in that. Huh.

Well, I can deal with that she has another opinion than I have. But I don't think I can quite comprehend it. Is that because I am not a Christian myself? I like to think, if there is a God, He / She would judge us for the people we harm, not for those we love. Thing is, even though I was not raised a Christian, I have some in my family who are, and as far as I can tell, none of them have a problem with same-sex-marriage and homosexuality. So, not minding homosexuality and being a Christian don't seem to exclude each other.

So, my friend's opinion is basically this: 1st, homosexuality is a matter of choice, and 2nd, it's sinful.

While I would generally say: 1st, it's genetically predisposed, and 2nd, sinful is only what happens without consent.

You see, in that point we stand on pretty much opposite sides. She says her belief is based on the wording of the bible, which says something like "when a man lies with another man as he should only with his wife, they both shall be put to death". Not verbally, but it goes along these lines - I beg those who mind the exact wording for pardon. But, well, the bible also says "thou shalt not kill". Isn't that contradictory anyway? Is the wording of the bible really the nonplusultra? I thought it was more about the overall message, which is more "love each other" than "kill each other", no?

As you see, I'm anything but an expert in matters of bible and Christianity. I would like to know some of your opinions - especially those of you who are Christians themselves. How do you think about homosexuality, about same-sex-marriages? Do they seem wrong to you? If so, why? If not, why not? Does a God of Love really judge certain ways of love? Let's discuss, because I really would like to understand it better.

Should I continue to be friends with someone whose opinion I think is so utterly wrong? Or should I not mind at all? Is it hypocritical to be friends with someone who thinks like this when I myself support same-sex-marriage? Or am I the one who's narrow-minded because I even bother to brood about this?
Inspiration? Helloooo? Don't sleep, I need you right now! Inspi- ...damn, I think it's dead. Or comatose. Aaanyway: I promised request pictures to the winners of my contest, and I still want to keep it. Just not right now. I have to ask forgiveness, especially from whitewolfdreamer27.deviantart.… and flyingfreedom13.deviantart.com… who already asked for specific pictures, I tried to work it out a few times. But so far I didn't manage to get something done that I found worth looking at. Please don't get angry, I will make the pics. In a few weeks maybe. But right now I kinda seem to be unable to construct something. Alright? :please:

I've moved to Berlin and am studying history and archaeology right now. Hope I'll go to dig in some country's old sands and find an old tomb of don't-know-yet-whom. Guess I'll write a book about it then... I love writing, even though it's a quite seasonal thing with me. Long phase of writing is always followed by a long phase of blockade eventually. I am more of a singer than an artist, so I have less to show here than the most of you. But hey, I'll give my very best! At using doll makers... ah well. I just cannot draw. A few years from now, I shall be an even nerdier little archaelogeek with some examina and still not life-proficient. I have my head somewhere between clouds and books and pretty old artefacts...
